Irwin Hasen suffers stroke
Our friend Tony Isabella tells us that comics legend Irwin Hasen is recovering from a stroke.
Tony provides Irwin’s definitive history: "Hasen is, of course, the talented artist and writer whose many credits include a 31-year run on the newspaper strip "Dondi," and comic-book covers and stories for such characters and titles as the Atom, Big Town, Detective Chimp, Flash, Gang Busters, Green Lantern, Justice Society of America, Our Army at War, Secret Hearts, Strange Adventures, Wonder Woman, and dozens more. He’s won the National Cartoonists Society award for best story strip and taught at the Joe Kubert School of Cartooning and Graphic Arts and the School of Visual Arts. If you have seen Irwin at conventions, you know that he is a snappy dresser, always friendly, and a teller of some of the best comics and life stories ever heard on a panel. I’m crazy about him."
Reports are that he’s on the mend and in good spirits. Irwin has been a frequent convention guest and always has a kind word for the fans. We always wish him nothing but the best.
